Biden would beat Trump if election were held tomorrow and it wouldn’t even be close, says Fox News editor
The political editor said that Biden 'has got to be' in Trump's head a little bit.
Former Vice President Joe Biden would beat President Donald Trump if a snap election were to be held tomorrow, Fox News politics editor Chris Stirewalt on Tuesday said while making a poll prediction.
He made the statement on Fox News as host Bill Hammer announced the results of recent polling showing 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Biden leading Trump if the election were held today. Hammer turned to the outlet's political editor Stirewalt to get a better understanding of why multiple polls were showing a "neck-and-neck" race between Biden and Trump.
Stirewalt said that the Democrats know if they chose the Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as their nominee, they would "have huge problems" in swing state, however, Biden could prove as an advantage to them in those regions.
"If the election were held tomorrow and it was Joe Biden versus Donald Trump and it was a snap election, Joe Biden would beat Donald Trump, and it wouldn’t be a very close race,” Stirewalt said. "But, what Republicans also know is they’re going to spend a billion dollars roughing up Joe Biden."
“The lesson for Trump here is, and he’s gotta remember this . . . if money mattered and organization mattered that much, Jeb Bush would have won the Republican nomination in 2016 and Hillary Clinton would be the president today,” the political editor added.
Stirewalt, during the segment, also branded Trump as the "most vulnerable incumbent president that we’ve seen." Hemmer noted the point and mentioned that Biden was the only Democratic candidate mentioned by Trump during his rally in Lexington, Kentucky on Monday. To which Stirewalt replied: "He’s gotta be in Trump’s head a little bit."
Stirewalt, in a clip shared by Raw Story, continued, saying that the Republicans "have a lot of money, they are not spending it."
"Democrats are spending a lot of money on a contested primary,” he added. "Trump has got a ton of money, he’s raising money at a fever clip because he doesn’t just get it from the millionaires and billionaires, he also gets it from is grassroots, popular supporters. Trump has all of this money and they are going to light up whatever Democrat emerges from this process.”
